Leading the Way in AI

Our Growing AI Footprint 

Statistics on our Commercial and Government AI Footprint Apex Systems, the largest business in our Commercial Segment, has deployed 790 consultants across 65 clients to complete 240 artificial intelligence projects over the past five years. 

ECS, our Federal Government Segment, is one of the top federal contractors supporting the government’s AI missions.1  We have over 1,000 combined certifications, accreditations, and awards across practice areas including the newly available certifications in AI/ML as the technology rapidly develops. Beyond these awards and certifications, we have deployed more than 300 models to the field and employ 200-plus data professionals and more than 60 AI/ML engineers and data scientists.  

Everyday our experts help commercial and federal organizations derive actionable insights from vast amounts of enterprise data, discover hidden patterns within that data, and make accurate predictions to increase the efficiency of their teams. 

Investing in AI to fuel our Clients’ and ASGN’s Future Growth and Success

At ASGN, we recognize that our clients – large enterprises and Fortune 1000 companies, along with federal defense, intelligence, and civilian agencies – are all looking to meet their business challenges at greater speed and with more accuracy and precision. AI is no longer an optional investment, but the cornerstone of breakthroughs, efficiencies, and experiences. By harnessing AI, our clients are powering a smarter future and unlocking the full potential of their products and people. We recognize that AI is not just a tool, but the foundation of organizational acumen steering enterprise decisions and strategies. AI surpasses task automation and provides a powerful ally for augmenting human intelligence.
Along with our clients, ASGN is strategically investing in AI growth and advancements. Our investments span six core areas including:

  1. Generating Digital AI roadmaps to support our clients’ long-term business objectives.
  2. Developing key partnerships with leading technology providers from Amazon and Microsoft to Salesforce and ServiceNow;
  3. Deploying internal tools, including AI solutions, that create efficiency and empower our teams;
  4. Hiring and retaining AI leadership;
  5. Deploying top-notch talent;
  6. Conducting training and advanced skill development.

We are fast adopters of new technologies and see advancements in new forms of artificial intelligence as key business drivers with the potential for great growth opportunities. Therefore, it is not just about investing in talent and solutions capabilities to support our clients, but also investing in our own internal AI expertise. The AI experiments and labs we perform internally to support our own organization ultimately add to the experiences we bring to our clients. We are leveraging AI technologies internally to create efficiencies such as with project management (see AgileGenius below) as well as deploying intelligent solutions externally to propel our clients’ businesses to new heights.
